Is there another means in which I can get this drop down list to appear in the Portal Contact above while in IWP?
Thank you for your post.
The Full Name field is actually on top of the kf_ID_Contact field. In FileMaker Pro, when you select the Full Name field, it also displays the drop-down for the kf_ID_Contact field. When you select this field, you'll notice the kf_ID_Contact field value (in your case, 4) display while the drop down list is displayed, which is showing the Full Name calculation value from the Events_EventsContacts_Events table.
In Instant Web Publishing, only the top field is being activated. Therefore, you may want to bring the kf_ID_Contact field to the front or size the kf_ID_Contact field small and set the Full Name field to the right. That way, you can select the drop down to the left of the field. Of course, the value won't be displayed on the right side until you commit/submit the record.
Thank you - that was the work around I suggested - with some minor differences. Which is good enough for my purposes.
